Summary

Crowford, a sleepy coastal town in the south of England, might seem like an oasis of calm and tranquillity. Beneath the surface, however, dark secrets are waiting to claim fresh victims and ghostly figures plot revenge.

Having finally decided to leave the hustle of London, Daisy and Richard Johnson buy two houses on Nelson Street, a picturesque street in the centre of Crowford. One house is perfect and ready to move into, while the other is a fire-ravaged wreck that needs a lot of work. They figure they have plenty of time to work on the damaged house while Daisy recovers from a traumatic event.

Soon, they discover that the two houses share a common link to the past. Something awful once happened on Nelson Street, something that shook the town to its core. Before they can face Crowford's horrors, however, Daisy and Richard have to deal with the ghosts of their own recent history. What is Daisy hiding, and why does Richard feel strangely drawn to one of the town's oldest inhabitants?

The Haunting of Nelson Street is a ghost story about a young couple fighting for their future and about a town trying to escape the clutches of its past.

Narrator was absolutely awful

The narrator ruined this book and made it sound like it was a children's book. With the right narrator it could have been so much more exciting and climatic.

Liked the twist at the end

Good story that I feel could have been expanded even further. I felt the narrator was just reading rather than performing . Plus at least once a paragraph was repeated . I did like the twist at the end which was unexpected

Terrible, unedited narration

I stuck with the painful narration because the story intrigued me and I like Amy Cross' books. Unfortunately it would appear that the narration was not edited, there were repeated sentences and lots of stumbling over words and phrases. It seemed like the narrator rushed through the reading get it done quickly. I'm glad it was free as if I'd paid for it I think I'd demand my money back!

Couldn’t wait to get to the end.

The title may confuse you as this is not a positive review. I honestly didn’t know what rating to go for. I’m afraid it was the narrator that spoiled it for me. It was like a kid reading in class. Very monotonous to the point that I kept drifting to do other things on my phone. If you get a new narrator I bet a lot more will read and review. I have listened to other books by Ms Cross and have enjoyed all of those.

The narration was poor

The reader was poor, the book isn't edited, quite a few repeated sentences and sounded as if it was recorded in a bathroom! Story not too bad but very similar to others written before this one. Glad it was free.

Pretty poor with bad editing

Nothing really positive to say about this so gonna say nothing! Although will mention duplication in text and missing/jumping in parts, just added to overall disappointment

Great story

I really enjoyed the story but the story teller was awful and needs to be re-done repeated parts of the book four or five times the story was entertaining and a good twist

Terrible narration

Story quite good. Ruined by awful narration. I liked the twist. Plot a bit simplistic at times.

Waste of a credit.

Awful. Poorly written, very poorly read. Hesitant and turgid. Amateur writing. Had to skip a chapter to be able to submit a review. Disappointed to the point of angry.

The poor narration.

I felt so irritated by the narrator’s voice I couldn’t bear to listen to the story. Such a pity as the narrator to Haunting of Briar Church was fantastic. I was expecting the same.
